Data Rights & Privacy
Privacy and data security issues impact nearly every area of a company’s operations, as today's technologies have made it easier than ever for companies to collect, use and transfer data throughout the world. The regulation of data has expanded, imposing complex and often inconsistent privacy and data protection standards. At the same time, the legal and business risks associated with non-compliance have escalated.
In this evolving area of law, Waller's attorneys provide advice on transactions as well as conduct security and risk assessments, provide training on incident response, assist clients who have suffered a breach or other data incident, coordinate with law enforcement when appropriate, advise executive leadership teams and boards, handle investigations and defend lawsuits.
A variety of companies, including health systems, universities, large and midsize businesses and emerging technology companies, call upon Waller to provide counsel on all aspects of data privacy, security and information management strategy.
